The way you want
When the song comes on that brings you into your body in the way that you want, no not almost, always, the way you want, your body, yes, here, here in the kitchen where music is discovered, no longer that crowded dance floor this is it. But why is this beat different from other beats? How do we know when the space inside spreads out into gestures so wide and frantic and expansive and familiar, oh here it goes again, what is it about this particular beat, the one that’s approaching, I can feel it in my solar plexus, correcsis, tendexis, repunexis — don’t look those words up just the sound, now, now this beat in the kitchen, oh here it is, down into the floor the way arms fling up and out and then it’s over.
